BLOG TOUR: Citadel of the Sky by Chrysoula Tzavelas- Review and Giveaway


Welcome to the tour for Citadel of the Sky by Chrysoula Tzavelas. This is an adult epic fantasy (clean and appropriate for YA readers). 
Her (not very) Serene Highness Princess Tiana tries her best not to think about the dark lords ravaging her country or how the magic in her bloodline makes her family go mad. The descendant of a legendary hero, she prefers bringing the myths of old to life on the theater stage, not on the battlefield.

Then a rash of suspicious deaths strikes the Regents—trusted advisors, friends, and guides to her troubled royal family—and the Noble’s Council tries to cover it all up. Tiana is determined to get to the bottom of the murders and the conspiracy, even if that means making a dangerous pact with a telepathic demon trapped in a magical sword. But he may just be the edge she needs to save the people she loves.

Cursed sword in hand, Tiana and her friends prepare to face the encroaching darkness­—and the ultimate truth about her and her family.

As an Air Force kid, Chrysoula went to twelve schools in twelve years and spent a lot of time wondering what made people tick. Books, it turned out, helped with that question. These days she lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family, which includes many small and demanding creatures who fight over her attention. Her first book, urban fantasy MATCHBOX GIRLS, was published in 2012 by the small press Candlemark & Gleam, followed annually by two more books in the same SENYAZA Series, all of which explore the impact of the supernatural on those who are— or who want to be— ordinary. Her next book, CITADEL OF THE SKY, is the first of a new series about the descendants of a Chosen One and the legacy of power and mental illness they’ve inherited. It’s also about Dark Lords and kicking butt in nice dresses.

As a HUGE Game of Thrones fan, I can say that after while my state of mind could only be classified as LOST in between the second last episode and the season finale, it was something HUGE for Citadel of the Sky to pull me out of a Game Of Thrones funk and get me into another world- because it was THAT good!

I should probably start by saying that I'm NOT going to elaborate on the actual story here, because if I tell you what happens, why would you read it? Like if someone told me about The Red Wedding, I'd probably not have been so heartbroken and shell shocked when it took place. But what I should say is that all you GoT fans who just want something as good without all the heartbreak- this is the book for it!

And the fact that I'm saying this with all my heart surprises me as well, because, if I'm being brutally honest, I didn't expect to like this book, and I started it quite late and only because I had to. But trust me, there's no bloody murder in this book, there's ridiculous number of people to remember, there's no to any of the GoT downsides.

I'm going to end this now- but I'm going to say that any fantasy reader will LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Citadel of The Sky with its dual view point and general awesomeness- SO READ IT!
